  • K&M Garlic Parmesan Butter
  • 1 Delicata Squash

  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  2. Halve and remove seeds from delicata squash. Dice squash into ¾” pieces; toss with 1-2 Tbsp olive oil and season with 1 tsp salt. Roast squash 20-25 minutes on a sheet pan until tender and browned.
  3.  While the squash is roasting, put a large pan over medium heat. Add risotto starter and break apart with a wooden spoon. Add ¼ cup white wine (or water) and bring to a simmer. Cook until the liquid is almost all absorbed, then add 1-1 ½ cup of roasted butternut squash soup; continue to cook, stirring occasionally until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender.
  4. Turn heat off and stir in 3-4 Tbsp garlic parmesan butter. Fold in half of the roasted delicata squash. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  5. Transfer to a serving dish and top with ½ cup parmesan cheese, remaining delicata, and ¼ cup toasted pepitas. Serve and enjoy!

    Chef’s Tip: If you like your risotto more al dente start with just ½ cup of butternut soup and add more according to your taste.
